1. The membership of the sub-committee is:
- Deputy First Minister and Minister for Rural Development (chair)
- Minister for Economic Development
- Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning
- Minister for Environment
- Minister for Finance, Local Government and Communities
- Minister for Health and Social Services
- Minister for Culture, Sport and the Welsh Language
Ministers should attend meetings where the agenda reflects items of relevance to their Ministerial portfolios. Where other Ministers, not members of the sub-committee, have an interest in any of the agenda items for a meeting of the sub-committee, they may attend that meeting subject to approval from the Chair of the Sub-Committee.
2. The sub-committee’s terms of reference are to consider policies with actual or potential impacts on rural regeneration and ensure that these policies are beneficial, mutually reinforcing, and carried out in an integrated way.
3. In so doing, the sub-committee will:
- determine the policy priorities for promoting and securing rural regeneration;
- identify and pursue cross-cutting policy initiatives which will contribute to rural regeneration;
- ensure that policy-making on rural regeneration gives due priority to Assembly Government cross-cutting themes, including sustainable development.
4. The sub-committee shall identify at an early stage its priorities for action in the first year, and shall keep these under review.
5. The sub-committee will meet as required, in private unless it decides otherwise. It will report to the full Cabinet from time to time. The agendas, minutes and papers will be published on the same basis as for the other Cabinet Sub-Committees (i.e. 5 weeks after the meeting for the agenda and 6 weeks after for minutes and papers, or as soon as possible after being cleared by the next meeting).
6. The sub-committee will be supported jointly by Cabinet and Constitution Unit and officials in the relevant policy divisions. It may involve individuals and organisations from outside the Assembly to contribute to its work as appropriate.
